I used mask 49 from

Font of choice.



Unless otherwise stated, I used a drop shadow of vertical 0,  horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 650 pixels and fill with white.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow but with the horizontal on 2 and opacity on 45. 

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 40% and place in position.  Copy paper 9 and paste it as a new layer below the element, resize it 25% and position it so the word dots is towards the bottom;  there will be a gap at the top where it doesn’t quite reach the top of the frame, just erase the hard edge and it will blend into the mask.  Paste your tube or close up as a new layer and mirror it, go to Adjust – Hue and Saturation – Colorize and apply with both values set to 0, then change the blend mode to “Overlay”.  Make any adjustments to the tube and paper layers, then select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, invert it and hit delete on both the tube and paper, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame (remember to change the settings).

Paste your main tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow. I resized my tube 65%.

Paste element 22 as a new layer, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, drag below the main tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27 as a new layer, resize 45% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12a as a new layer, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29 as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 70 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 12 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17 as a new layer, resize 35% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 40%, mirror and apply the drop shadow, duplicate and mirror the duplicate.  Position the original copy below the ribbon on the right and the duplicate just below the tube on the left.

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 30% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 35% and position on the left, duplicate and move the duplicate over to the right apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 19 as a new layer, resize 27% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 as a new layer, resize also 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Go back to the white background layer, make a new layer, select all paste paper 2 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Mirror the mask, then rotate it 30 degrees to the left and use your Pick tool to stretch it out so it fits nicely below the tag.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
